Sebastian Herkner

Sebastian Herkner was born in 1981 in Bad Mergentheim and studied industrial design at the HfG Offenbach from 2001 to 2007. In context of an internship with Stella McCartney in London, Sebastian refined and perfected his feeling for materials, colours and structures. In 2006, and while still studying, Sebastian founded his own studio in Offenbach am Main and focused on the design of furniture and accessories which blend the impressions and traditions of different cultural contexts. And where for all he always combines the latest technologies with traditional craftsmanship. Sebastian Herkner has realised projects for a wide range of high-profile customers, including ClassiCon, Dedon, FontanaArte, La Chance, Moroso, Pulpo and Rosenthal. The recipient of numerous awards including a Leonardo Da Vinci scholarship and the German Design Award in the category of Newcomer, Sebastian Herkner was selected as Guest of Honour at IMM Cologne 2016. In addition to his work as a designer, Sebastian also realises interior architecture projects and taught at the HfG Offenbach from 2006 to 2012.
